How to enter the Unlocking Code for a Blackberry RIM 8800
General Information about the codes
When you receive your code it will be in one of two formats (depending on your model)
1: A single string of 4 or 5 long numbers or
2: Again a string of numbers, but with some identifying letters between them (EG MEP/NCK etc)
If you receive format 1, then these are simply 4 or 5 codes that need to be tried. (So when you are asked to enter the unlocking code, you need to try each one, starting with the 1st).
If you receive format 2, then please refer to the table below for your code.

Note: BlackBerry in 90% of countries will only require the MEP2 code
